Fans criticise singer following post...

American R&B artist Summer Walker has been criticised after she shared a post about coronavirus.

The singer appears to have taken dystopian news coverage to heart, and was pictured wearing a mask in public to help prevent the spread of the disease.

Last night - March 3rd - Summer Walker shared a news post across her Instagram, seeming to blame people in China for deliberately spreading coronavirus.

The 'fake news' posting is two years old and long since discredited, but Summer doubled down in the comments.

A social media storm quickly erupted, with Summer Walker then deleting her Instagram - the singer has yet to comment further.
